The capacious literature on foreign direct investment reveals that among many other important issues, growth and welfare implications for the developing countries in general have perhaps taken a focal point and have attracted considerable attention from researchers and policy-makers alike. In this regard, one could think of several implications of multinational corporation activities on growth, development, and welfare of the developing and transition countries around the world. This chapter reviews the location choice of multinational corporations in a typical developing country. Subsequently, the chapter devotes itself to the analysis of an exogenous inflow of foreign capital in a model of international trade in the presence of unemployment in the host country. Furthermore, the chapter discusses possible links between foreign capital inflow and the labour market interactions for a developing country with policy implications drawn from the analytical structures.

Keywords:   foreign direct investments, multinational corporations, capital mobility, retail sector, welfare, general equilibrium
